Subject: TFTP fetch-url inserts superflous slash in remote file
Date: Sun, 12 May 2013 12:07:29 +0200
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: debian-installer-utils

Version: 1.95

The TFTP fetch-url method script inserts a slash in front of the
remote file. This
breaks certain TFTP servers with 'access violation'. Since TFTP expects the
path to start at root, the slash is not necessary and can be removed.

so the line > remote_file="/$(echo $url | cut -d/ -f 4-)"

should be > remote_file="$(echo $url | cut -d/ -f 4-)"
